Finest wire for exquisite watches
Special KOCH machines with all-ceramic drawing rings make highest quality wires for luxury Swiss chronometers
High-strength wires for watch wristband pins are manufactured on the new, special version, straight-line drawing machine that KOCH recently completed. The drawn wires are later incorporated in luxury Swiss timepieces that represent the ultimate in quality.
All wires that are produced with the KOCH drawing machine comply with exacting standards of strength and surface quality. “These wires are integrated in the metal bracelets of exclusive watches, so they have to be manufactured with extreme precision,” explained Harald Udelhoven, Technical Director at KOCH. To ensure that the wire is drawn very gently from block to block KOCH has fitted out the machine with specially designed capstans with all-ceramic drawing rings. This prevents any surface damage to the wire.
KOCH is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of wire-drawing machines for diverse sectors of industry in the global markets – from construction and automotive to industries with special quality requirements such as medical technology and consumer goods manufacturing.
Highest quality: KOCH has fitted out the machine with specially designed capstans with all-ceramic drawing rings.
